retrieving data from unlinked tables

P: 5
I have a table (Working_Year) that is storing a single field which is the year (current_year) that is selected by the user in my initial form when the database is loaded. Am I able to use that data in other forms and reports with out linking the table? I would like to simply display the current_year the user is working in a textbox somewhere on the forms (example form named: "Main Entry") and use the current_year as a filter on reports (example report called "Gifts - by Type").
